Ties That Should Be in Every Man’s Wardrobe

Monday, February 29th, 2016

The tie is a staple accessory in every man’s wardrobe. Whether you wear one on a daily basis for work or you only frequently wear them for special events, there is no doubt that you have at least a handful of ties in your closet.

Even if you don’t wear them on a regular basis, you do want to make sure that you are happy with the ties that you own. You want to be happy with the way that they look and you want to make sure that they give you that clean, polished look that they are meant to provide. In order to ensure that you are happy and that you look great, here’s a look at some ties that you should make sure that you are going to want to have in your wardrobe.

Skinny Neckties. As the name suggests, skinny neckties are skinny. They pull an outfit together without being overly formal. A skinny tie is perfect to wear to a daytime event, on a casual date or to the office on a casual dress day.

Plaid Ties. Whether it is in a bold color, or you choose a tone-on-tone version, a plaid tie is one that you are going to want to have in your closet. This pattern adds an immediate pop of color and/or interest to your wardrobe.

Silk Ties. This material lends a sophisticated touch to any outfit. Silk offers a rich, luxurious look that automatically dresses up any outfit. A silk necktie is perfect for a formal event, whether it’s a work function or a wedding.

With these three types of ties in your wardrobe, you will be able to successfully achieve that put-together, sophisticated and dapper look, whatever the occasion may be.

How to Spice Up the Traditional Gift of a Tie for Seasonal Holidays

Monday, February 8th, 2016

Another holiday, another necktie. If your father, husband, brother, or partner is in business, it’s probably safe to say you’ve given2 him more than your fair share of ties for special gift-giving occasions. That doesn’t mean you need to stop relying on ties as a gift. On the contrary. Up your game and give a more fun tie for the next holiday.

Romantic Holidays

Some of the most dynamic novelty neckties are the ones perfect for romantic holidays and occasions such as Valentine’s Day, Sweetest Day, and your anniversary. Hearts, cupids, and simple patterns in shades of deep red and pink are ideal for gifts during holidays that celebrate romance.

Winter Holidays

As winter rolls around, your holiday shopping list gets several miles long. Check off a lot of the men on your list with ties featuring Santa Claus, Christmas mouse, and snowflake designs to get them into the holiday spirit. They don’t even have to be so obviously Christmassy. Subdued snowflake patterns make for attractive ties a man can wear year-round.

More Personal Theme

Buy a tie that’s more a reflection of the man who’s going to be wearing it than the holiday or special occasion itself. For example, tech lovers adore the computer mouse, the @ sign, or the Internet-themed ties, while frequent visitors to Las Vegas can’t go gambling without poker or casino-themed ties. Buy a tie with beer or cigar designs or even a wild animal pattern. A more personal theme showcases the man in the suit like no other tie.

Ties will never go out of style, and every man with a suit in his wardrobe needs quite a few to accessorize the suit for different occasions. Let him feel a little fun with conversation-starting ties that are more novelty than what he’s usually used to. If you’re unsure about it, buy him a more traditional tie along with it.

How to Care for a Silk Tie

Monday, February 1st, 2016

Whether it’s for a professional portrait, a special occasion, or dressing up for a visit to your church, you know your young son or1 grandson will look dashing and adorable in a proper suit with a tie. However, young boys don’t always know what to make of ties, and they don’t like sitting still for you to properly tie one. If it’s too early to teach a young boy how to properly tie a tie, ease him into tie-wearing.

Pre-Tied Ties

If you have a young boy you want to dress smartly, pre-tied ties are your dream come true. These zipper ties are as easy to put on as the zippers they’re named for. You place them over the head and pull up until the knot is in the right place. There’s no fumbling or tying, and the knot looks perfect for pictures.

Clip-On Ties

Children are among the biggest consumers for clip-on ties because they’re hassle free. Both traditional ties and bowties suit boys in dress shirts and suits. Plus, they’re safer when the kids start playing around because they can quickly be pulled out of the way if they get stuck.

Make a Clip-On From an Old Tie

Start a tradition of passing down Dad or Grandpa’s old ties to the boys of the next generation. If your favorite ties are too big or require a traditional knot, task an expert with transforming the old tie into a new clip-on version.

Call a sales representative with any questions or pointers for outfitting a young boy in a tie with or without a suit coat. Boys can get used to traditional ties, but it’s best if you ease them into it with ties that take less time to put on so they don’t associate ties with an experience that takes a while when they’re impatient.
